im sick and tired of everyone on this site trying to be so politically correct and kind all the time....


If the pictures sucks...it sucks...and it does....the processing is terrible...i still don't see much use for HDR in portraits except maybe to enhance the sky and patch in later but this is just awful work and I think people deserve the right to hear it for their own good!

Hi Darthkindy,

Interesting picture! And unlike my fellow posters I do like your post-processing - but I think it would be better if it wasn't quite so sharp. I realize that downsizing an image like this, may actually make it worse.

The image is almost olive-colored - but not quite. Maybe a full monochrome-conversion and some vignetting could make it more palatable for general consumption..lol.

Nonetheless, I like it - I think it's interesting. Great look in his eyes, good posture/pose and lots of character!

elijahschaffer - I don't know about political correctness. I don't think that Christoff87 was holding back much. And where do you see excessive kindness in these two short comments. There's nothing wrong with being kind....ever. It's not like saying about a picture that "it sucks" (which you are) is a good way to save Darthkindy from turning to The Dark Side here. It's certainly anyone's prerogative to not like something and that is never in question - but when you say something "sucks" in such absolute terms, you're assuming that it's so universal that there are nobody on this planet who could ever like it.

Cheers :-)

This guy has interesting features and I like the shot although I am not one for overdone PP (personal choice). Not everyone has the same opinion on a particular shot and we should respect other peoples views.

@lahlahsr, you are like the teacher who think being kind to the students and giving them A's in the end of the their studies for giving effort is a worthy cause.

however, it's the teachers who make the kids work for their grades that help them learn. Yes you can be kind in being honest but masking the truth just that you don't seem rude is just absurd. It is not entirely those two comments...it's the variety of comments I see on here everyday. There needs to be nice people but there also needs to be blunt people. They all balance each other out.

but I agree with your comments on what he could have done to make the photo a bit better

It's got a brownish faded 1970's vibe.

lahlahsr, as a teacher bring out the cane. :) I have seen quite a few of this type of shot in magazines recently and it appears popular.


Cheers

awsome comments ( i thought this forum was dead ) and i was going to take my stuff some were different but you have renued my interest. in this fourm keep the comments comming ( is nice to see the passion )
it has been lacking as of late thank god for the warm weather.

I like the fact that you did not hold back i have come to the realization that i do photography for the masses not for you but you are the masses so keep them comming because you are part of the masses.

ps it was not and hdr i just wanted to see how far i could push something and still get what i liked ( i wantedn out of my confort zone because that is how we grow and learn so thanks
